Congratulations on your ability (and desire) to use Google. I prefer to post
off the top of my head, because we haven't reached the place yet where we
all have internet browsers built into our brains, so there will be no need
to ever think for ourselves. By the time that happens, I will (thankfully)
be dead and gone. You, on the other hand, will benefit greatly from such an
addition to your memory, and the accuracy of detail that that addition will
bring. I still require the ability to speak with people person to person on
the street and during the breaks at my gigs and such other places where I
don't have instant access to the internet. In fact, some of the people I
speak with during my daily activities don't even own a computer. These
people have to look me in the eye and respond to my conversations on a
spur-of-the-moment basis, (believe it or not) and their memories are
frequently taxed when it comes to details like dates and names. Most of
these people, like myself will be dead and gone by the time you receive your
implant. But you will know (pardon me, not "know" but rather "be able to
talk about") all about them because of your ability to draw on all the
knowledge of mankind in a fraction of a second......What a wonderful world
it will be.....NOT!!

All the news services are biased.....
The only way to be well informed is to watch a sampling of them all. I even
go so far as to listen to the BBC on short wave (and PBS) whenever I can
find the time. By cutting out FOX news you are putting a hole in your
knowledge, and giving the Obama administration a pass on lots of their
questionable policies.

Yes. Unlike you liberals, I believe that the people in this country are
intelligent and able to pick their own choices wisely.....Most liberals
believe that the general population are too stupid to be able to pick their
own choices, and require their government to do it for them.....this is the
main difference between liberals and libertarians. Between socialists and
capitalists, too.

Silly me.....I clicked on those links expecting to get some real example of
FOX news bias, so I could (hopefully) refute it.....All I got was a
augh. - Which I appreciate, by the way, but no meat........
